    Filling in a survey

    A 21-year-old Georgetown University student, Katie Miller, is tired of being ghosted by men she dates, a feeling many other women her age can relate to as well. But instead of scoffing a pound of ice cream and downing a bottle or two of vino, she came up with a much better solution that might also be able to help her out on future dating endeavors.

    As Insider reported, Miller created an “exit survey,” which she sends to men when their relationship ends, or even just when a guy she has been unofficially dating decides to stop seeing her. Her solution went viral after her friend, Abby Govindan, shared it on Twitter.

    “I actually made the survey on Sunday after being ghosted yet again,” Miller explained. “I wanted to see if I could prevent that, and I wanted to ask why it happened without initiating a conversation.”

    The questions on the survey are fairly simple and easy to understand.

    Megyn Kelly speaks onstage at the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit 2018 at Ritz Carlton Hotel on October 2, 2018 in Laguna Niguel, California.

    Some upper-level insiders at NBC think that former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly is using the #MeToo movement for selfish purposes, according to Page Six.

    Whispers from NBC insiders started after Kelly told Us Weekly that she has some kind of secret information regarding disgraced former NBC anchor Matt Lauer.

    “I know too much that others don’t know,” Kelly told the magazine when asked if she thought Lauer would make a comeback after he was ousted from the network for sexual harassment allegations.

    “All I’m going to say is that I feel very strongly about the #MeToo coverage, the importance of doing it without fear or favor.” Kelly continued.

    People at NBC weren’t fond of Kelly’s comments.

    “There were a lot of eye rolls. What does she really know? She’s not close to anyone here,” insiders told Page Six.

    The insider continued, “She’s milking the #MeToo movement. People are counting down the days until she’s gone.”

    donald trump didn't win the nobel peace prize

    Donald Trump did not win the Nobel Peace Prize, much to the disappointment of some of his supporters who thought the 45th president deserved the honor for his work towards de-nuclearizing the Korean Peninsula. Instead, as BBC News reports, the honor went to two people who have campaigned against sexual violence.

    As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Donald Trump did what no U.S. president has been able to do in 60 years in sitting down and meeting face-to-face with a North Korean leader. Trump’s April summit with Kim Jong-Un in Singapore got conservatives excited about the possibility of Trump winning a Nobel Peace Prize.

    Fox News contributor Harry J. Kazianis, for example, wrote that no other president could have gotten a North Korean dictator into a room.

    “The meeting would never have taken place if not for President Trump. And for this achievement, President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.”

    William Clyde Allen reportedly confessed to sending a package to the white house

    William Clyde Allen, the Utah Navy veteran who allegedly sent a “suspicious” package to the White House, allegedly confessed to this crime, according to a police affidavit made available by CNN.

    As previously reported by the Inquisitr, this week at least three envelopes containing components of the deadly poison ricin were delivered to Washington: two to the Pentagon and one to the White House. The one intended for the White House was intercepted long before it reached the building, and no one – including the president – was exposed to the poison or ever in any danger. Similarly, the two Pentagon envelopes, addressed to Defense Secretary James Mattis and Admiral John Richardson, Chief of Naval Operations, were intercepted at the Pentagon’s central mail processing facility; no one there is believed to have been exposed to any poisons, either.

    Brett Kavanaugh testifying before the Senate

    Following Brett Kavanaugh’s performance at the Senate hearing last week, the American Bar Association has announced that they will be re-evaluating the previous rating of “well-qualified” for his nomination to the Supreme Court.

    As reported by Business Insider, the announcement came just hours before the Senate was due to vote to advance Kavanaugh’s confirmation, despite the sexual assault allegations against him.

    Last week, the world heard the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who claims Kavanaugh and a friend of his sexually assaulted her in 1982, when she was just 15-years-old. Throughout her entire testimony and questioning, she remained calm despite the obvious trauma she was reliving.

    Fox News website.

    Fox News anchor Greg Gutfeld told viewers of The Five Thursday night that he feels the way Democrats have been treating Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation process is similar to the crucifixion of Jesus, according to The Wrap.

    “Crucifixion was an important event because it was designed to establish a wall between justice and mob rule — Christ died so that the mob wouldn’t survive,” Gutfeld told viewers.

    “I know one thing about in my 12 years of Catholic Church was that crucifixion was an important event because it was designed to establish a wall between justice and mob rule,” Gutfeld said.

    “Christ died so that the mob wouldn’t survive,” he said. “He died for everybody’s sins.”

    “What Democrats have tried to do is tear down the wall between justice and mob rule,” Gutfeld continued.

    “They decided to crucify someone once again. That’s what’s wrong.”

    A victim places her arms in front of her face, fearing assault.

    Jordan Hunt, a Canadian hairdresser, was fired from his job at a Toronto hair salon after a viral video showed him roundhouse-kicking a female pro-life activist — and then fleeing the scene of the attack.

    Marie-Claire Bissonnette, 27, is the youth coordinator of the Campaign Life Coalition, which organized a pro-life rally in Toronto.

    “He kicked me in the shoulder, and my phone went flying,” Marie-Claire told the Toronto Sun. “I don’t think it’s acceptable to show any physical violence to anyone who disagrees with you. The perpetrator should know that.”

    ‘He Kicked Me In The Shoulder’

    Bissonnette said that Hunt fled the scene of the assault after she urged the crowd to call the police.

    “I start shouting for someone to call police and before he runs away, he goes up to me — and I had a [Campaign Life] ribbon on my jacket — and he tore it off my chest,” Marie-Claire recounted.

    birds in minnesota are getting drunk

    A Minnesota town is finding itself bedeviled by the cutest of problems: birds are getting drunk on fermented berries and making nuisances of themselves.

    As Huffington Post reports, the police in Gilbert, Minnesota, would find it cute if it weren’t such a hassle. People keep calling the cops about the menacing fine feathered friends — as if there’s anything that the police can do about it.

    Here’s the problem: birds generally eat berries that are still on the trees. By the time that the berries have had time to decay and ferment, the animals are long gone, having flown south for the winter. However, this year an early frost has interfered with the natural order of things, giving the birds ample opportunity to eat fruit that has started the fermentation process. And when they do that, they get “drunk.”

    And drunk birds aren’t funny at all. Amateur ornithologist Matthew Dodder says that buzzed birds are a nightmare for drivers.

    Image of a husky dog.

    The piercing blue gaze of a husky is a big part of the charm of the breed — one that leaves hearts melting left and right whenever these lovable wolf-like canines make an appearance.

    But no one has been able to figure out why these Arctic “good boys” are born with pale-blue eyes — a feature shared by very few dog breeds, according to Nuzzle. Nuzzle lists only the Siberian Husky, Australian Shepherd, Border Collie, Dalmatian, and Shetland Sheepdog as having this distinctive eye color.

    Enter Cornell University scholars, who are finally beginning to unravel the mystery, reports Inverse.

    In a new study published yesterday in the journal PLOS Genetics, a team of scientists from the prestigious New York university ventures an explanation for those cerulean eyes that give Siberian Huskies their wild magnetism — aside from their sled-pulling and prey-hunting abilities, that is.

    Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testifying in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee

    Leland Keyser — a friend of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford — told the FBI that she felt pressured to clarify the statement that she made regarding the alleged assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. According to the Wall Street Journal, Dr. Ford’s allies pushed Keyser to update her original statement in which she claimed to know nothing about the event.

    Dr. Ford has said that Keyser was present at the party where she was allegedly assaulted. When asked to comment on the assault, Keyser noted that she had no knowledge of the event in question.

    Wall of flames with a dark background

    Arkansas officials have been scrambling for answers ever since flames erupted from the earth on September 17 in Midway. So far, every possibility has been ruled out — including the Prince of Darkness. Per the Baxter Bulletin, an investigation by local officials, including Baxter County Judge Mickey Pendergrass, has cleared the Devil of any wrongdoing. Pendergrass commented on this particular theory to help give religious residents some peace of mind.

    “As far as the spiritual Satan goes, we’ve ruled that out. He didn’t come up and stick his pitchfork in the ground and blow that hole out.”

    The Arkansas Democrat Gazette reported that the hole itself has been in existence for at least a decade, which seemingly squashes other theories such as a meteorite crashing to the ground and bursting into flames. People have also questioned the possibility of any nearby leaking fuel lines, but it has been confirmed that no such leaks are possible in the area.

    Bernie Sanders saved absent-minded student from being hit by a car.

    Bernie Sanders sold himself in 2016 as the candidate who was looking out for the youngest generation of Americans.

    Now, he can say that literally.

    The Vermont Senator was walking in Washington, D.C., this week when he came across a law student lost in her thoughts and about to step into traffic. As the legal blog Above The Law noted, Sanders noticed the young woman and yelled to catch her attention before she stepped into certain doom.

    The young woman, Amy Currotto, is a student at the University of the District of Columbia’s David A. Clarke School of Law. She talked to People about the incident, saying she went from being lost in thought to star-struck at being saved by the former presidential candidate.

    Currotto, who said she was already a Bernie Sanders supporter, even agreed to take a selfie after saving her life.

    Close-up of a brown widow spider (Latrodectus geometricus).

    A venomous spider native to Africa has apparently made its way into Oregon after one local reported finding a brown widow spider in her backyard, per Katu.

    Scientifically known as Latrodectus geometricus, this species is related to the black widow spider (Latrodectus hesperus) and has made a home in the southeastern, southern, and southwestern United States, notes Desert USA.

    While the brown widow spider is no stranger to Southern California, as the Inquisitr previously reported — and can also be found anywhere from Texas to South Carolina — this is the first time that the arachnid was spotted in the northern state of Oregon.

    According to Oregon Live, it’s still unclear how the brown widow spider, which was sighted in the Portland area, ended up this far north.

    The exotic specimen was found in September by Oregon City resident Marci Beddingfield, who initially thought that the spider was a black widow.

    Man Found Guilty Of Tricking Four Men Into Sex By Pretending To Be A Woman On Dating Apps

    A British court convicted a 33-year-old man who was accused of pretending to be a woman on dating apps and websites and tricking four men to have sex with him.

    According to a report from Sputnik News, Duarte Xavier was convicted on Friday at Kingston Crown Court in London of six counts of causing a male 13-years-old and above to engage in sexual activity. The acts allegedly took place over the past two years, as the court found that Xavier, while using the pseudonym “Ana,” used a number of dating services, including Tinder and Lovoo, as well as Craigslist to look for men whom he could have sex with.

    As further noted by Sputnik News, Xavier’s modus operandi as “Ana” involved engaging men in sexually charged conversations, but only meeting up with them for sex if they agreed to wear a blindfold during the entire course of their encounter and agreed not to make physical contact during intercourse.

    Jason Van Dyke appears in court.

    It took 12 jurors just eight hours of deliberation to render a guilty verdict against Jason Van Dyke, a Chicago Police Department officer who had shot and killed a teenager in 2014.

    Laquan McDonald, 17-years-old at the time of the shooting, was shot 16 times by Van Dyke on the night of October 20, 2014. His death went largely unnoticed in the media until a judge ordered dashcam footage of his death be released a year later, according to reporting from NPR.

    Upon the video’s release, the public was soon outraged by what was shown. The video seemed to contradict the officer’s assertions that the teenager posed a violent threat to him. Although McDonald was carrying a knife, he never walked toward Van Dyke. Instead, the video appears to show McDonald attempting to walk away from the officer at a normal pace when Van Dyke started shooting at him.

    Monica Lewinsky poses for a photo dressed down in a leather jacket.

    Monica Lewinsky ushered October in on her own terms this year, with the launching of a social media campaign that she is encouraging all to join – in observance of National Bullying Prevention Month.

    Lewinsky’s #DefyTheName initiative seeks to inspire a discussion around name-calling as a prevalent form of bullying. The challenge to all of those who may see such an endeavor as a noble one is for each person to take power back from whatever slur, characterization, or label has been cast upon them in the past. To Lewinsky’s experience, this can be done if victims of name-calling simply own whatever insult may have never sat right with them and perhaps still leaves the victim feeling disempowered.

    Donald Trump, Brett Kavanaugh, sexual assault, Stormy Daniels

    In her speech on the Senate floor Friday, announcing her intention to vote yes on Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation, Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins took aim at the allegations leveled by Julie Swetnick, who is represented by Michael Avenatti. In a sworn affidavit, as The Daily Beast recounted, Swetnick alleged that she was drugged against her will and gang-raped at a party where Kavanaugh was present.

    Though Swetnick never alleged that Kavanaugh participated in her rape, or in any rapes, she alleged in her sworn statement that as a teenager, Kavanaugh “consistently engaged in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women during the early 1980s,” and that Kavanaugh and his high school friend Mark Judge “targeted” women at parties to be drugged and later raped by multiple men, according to CNBC.

    Judge Brett Kavanaugh

    The vote passed narrowly, 51 to 49, but the Senate has decided move ahead with a final vote on Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination.

    The Senate could vote as soon as Saturday, according to the BBC. Should the vote again fall 51 to 49, Brett Kavanaugh will become the next Supreme Court Justice. Kavanaugh, 53, is a current federal judge in the U.S. Court of Appeals. The Supreme Court is a lifetime appointment.

    Kavanaugh has been constantly in the media following allegations of sexual assault brought against him by Christine Blasey Ford. She testified before the Supreme Court Judiciary Committee last week to tell her story. According to her testimony, Kavanaugh tried to force sex upon her while both were teenagers attending the same party in the early 1980s.

    Donald J. Trump

    Senator Lindsey Graham says in a new interview that President Donald Trump once thought that archived footage of North Korean missile launches was happening in real time, The Hill reports.

    Shortly after Donald Trump was elected, senior United States Senator from South Carolina Lindsey Graham was invited to the White House for lunch. Trump, Graham, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and then-National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster watched Fox News while dining.

    Eager to get Lindsey Graham’s thoughts on national security, Trump started a conversation with the senator – Graham is a self-proclaimed national security expert – who singled out Iran and North Korea as two of his biggest concerns.

    Coincidentally, at that point, Fox News started showing archived footage of North Korean missile launches. Apparently, President Trump started worrying that the launch was happening in real time. Luckily, Senator Graham reassured him.

    “That’s old footage, old footage!”

    Graham laughed while recounting the memory for the Washington Post.
